    The local shops here will mod my PSP currently running v3.11 to permit it to play from the pro duo card for HKD200. Do you think this is worth it?

    nah dude, you can do it yourself easily with the right instructions. its better to do it yourself cuz you dont have to worry about anyone tampering with your system and you can make your own decicsions.

    you said 3.11? I dont think you can currently modify that version,only 3.03 and below are downgradable.

    That's what I thought but he was insistent. Anyway I am concerned about bricking it if I do it myself.

    I'd also be concerned about doing it myself, but i'd be more concerned about a shop clerk spewing that he can mod a psp with FW 3.11...

    stay away! stay far away!!!

    you only brick your psp when you flash. you flash when you downgrade and upgrade to firmware, so basically, there are only 2 chances for you to brick. and i hear that it's very rare to hit those chances. also, i've heard that the more you flash your psp, the greater the chance of you bricking it. so as long as you keep your psp from constantly upgrading firmwares, you'll be good.

    and i thought that they were able to downgrade from 3.10 now? i dunno. thats just what i thought

    what the guy will do is probably change your motherboard. How much is he charging you. if it's not outrageous, you can consider it. It's NOT a easy doozy procedure like, say, changing the faceplate. But it can be done.

    The only way to mod a 3.11 right now is with a mod chip or possibly change the motherboard as stated earlier. 3.03 is as high as you can soft downgrade.

    Thanks that's as much as I have gleamed from other threads. The switching motherboards is news to me.
